Insert lamps into both lamp holders. Twist ¼ turn to make
electrical contact.
Align the two fixed pins of the Accessory Frame with the Frame
Slide the Frame forward to seat the pins into the Brackets.
Retract the sliding pins on the Frame to properly seat the Frame on
the Brackets.
Release the pins to lock the Frame in place.
The gel frame is secured to the fixture by 4 spring-loaded pins. Align the
pins of the gel frame with the oval receptacle holes on the edge of the
fixture. Pull back the pins and release into the receptacles to properly
secure the gel frame.
A) The Gel Frame comes with
Gel Clips. Cut the gel to size and
use the Clips to fasten the gel to
the Frame.
B) Another method is to apply
transfer tape directly to the gel
frame. The clips are not
necessary when taping the gel.
Place the long edge of the Louver with the fixed pins into the Frame. The
fixed pins fit into receptacle holes on each corner of the frame. Align the
upper corners of the Louver to the Frame. Retract the movable pins to
properly seat the Louver. Release the pins to lock in place.
The Wall-O-Lite can be mounted to a
Junior Combo stand or hung from a pipe
hanger. The Junior Mount that is included
with the fixture is used when mounting on
a stand.
Rotation and Tilt Controls
A) The golden lock lever controls
the rotation of the fixture.
B) The black knob controls the tilt.
Accessory part #MTP-WH is used to
operate the mount from a Junior Pipe
A) Manual Selector Dial: Turns lamps on and off manually without connecting DMX
Cable to Fixture.
B) Individual Lamp / Fixture Switch: Converts between INDIVIDUAL LAMP and
FIXTURE methods of DMX control.
C) DMX Address: Sets DMX Address of Fixture.
D) DMX TERMINATE Switch: Terminates DMX signal at the end of Fixture series.
E) DMX-In & DMX-Out: DMX-IN receives DMX signals from Dimmer Board, DMXOUT relays DMX signal through to other Fixtures or Instruments.
Power Panel
F) Power Switch: Has a built-in indicator light, which can detect if AC power is
present in power cord. "O" = OFF position
G) Fuse: Provides circuit protection. Note: If Fuse is "blown" or "open" replace with
same type of fuse rating as marked.
The dimmer board/light console should have its channel set to LINEAR light output
response. (LINEAR response is the default setting on most dimmer boards.)
Provide 120 Volt AC primary power.
Do not dim the fixture through a dimming circuit.
If powering the fixtures through a dimmer board, set the dimmer profile to
Load Considerations:
Kino Flo ballasts are not power factor corrected. They will draw double the
current on the neutral from what is being drawn on the two hot legs. On large
installations it may be necessary to double your neutral run so as not to
exceed your cable capacity.
The DMX Wall-O-Lite Fixture may be operated manually with the Manual
Lamp Selector Dial. The Dial enables you to turn lamps on and off with an
“inside-out” pattern (i.e., if all lamps are on, the outside tubes will turn off
Note: In lamp position 2 and 4, two lamps light simultaneously. In positions
5-10 individual lamps light.
DMX Wall-O-Lite Switching
Note: Manual lamp switching is disabled as soon as DMX cables are applied.
DMX Addressing
Prior to hanging any instruments set the DMX address of
each Fixture.
Push the tabs above or below the number window to set the
( Valid addresses range from 001 to 512.) The yellow light
above the address block will illuminate if a DMX signal is
After the DMX address is entered, the Wall-O-Lite Fixture automatically assigns the next
7 addresses to lamp positions 4 - 10.
Note: Manual lamp switching is disabled as soon as the DMX cables are applied. For
Manual control with DMX cables plugged in, set address to “000”. There is a 5 second
delay when switching between DMX and Manual control.
The DMX Terminate Switch must be set to open ( O )
on Fixtures within the DMX chain.
Set to closed ( I ) when the Fixture is the last DMX
control device in the chain.
Note: When the last Fixture's DMX Term is set to “I,” it
will absorb all energy in the DMX line, ensuring DMX
signals are transmitted correctly. If a signal is not
terminated, it is called a “Reflected Wave,” and may
create transmission errors by causing valid DMX signals
to be canceled.
Any theatrical lighting board with DMX 512
protocol can be used to individually turn
on/off lamps in a Fixture.
Wall-O-Lites can be jumpered using the IN
and OUT ports. As many as 100 Fixtures can
be jumpered on one chain as long as the DMX
cable run remains under 1000 feet or 40 x 25ft
DMX cables.
Note: When operating Fixtures at great
distances from the dimmer board it is
recommended to use Opto-Isolators to
provide DMX signal amplification.
DMX Cables
The Fixture uses five-pin XLR male and
female connectors to receive DMX signals
from the Dimmer Board and jumper the
Fixtures in a series. DMX pin-out wiring
follows the USITT DMX512 standard:
Do Not use Microphone Cables
and other, general purpose, twocore Cables designed for audio
or signaling use. They are not
suitable for DMX512. Problems
due to incorrect cabling may not
be immediately apparent.
Microphone Cables may appear
to work fine, but systems built
with such Cables may fail or be
prone to random errors. Cable
must comply with EIA-485
Pin 1: Shield
Pin 2: Data Pin 3: Data +
Pin 4: Spare Pin 5: Spare +
Note: Pin four and five in the Fixture are
connected internally as Pin four to four and
Pin five to five. Connecting Pin four and five
as the pass-thru allows secondary data to be
passed through for other equipment.
NOTE: If a Fixture or Ballast loses its DMX signal it will hold it’s last
DMX command. For this reason it is important to turn a Fixture or Ballast off
using the DMX commands. For example if you try to turn off the lights by
turning off the dimmer board the lights will remember their last DMX
command and stay on. The Fixtures or Ballasts require a DMX “Off” or “
Black-out” command in order to turn off.
Setting the unit to "Fixture Mode" allows
the user to re-create the "Inside-Out"
pattern of the manual switch.
One of the best applications for the
"Fixture Mode" is when lighting Blue and
Green Screens or large Cycloramas.
For example: One row of fixtures can be
set to Fixture mode on a common
address. When the fader on the dimmer
board is brought up or down all the
Fixtures on that address will have the
same lamps turned on.
Dimmer level - Lamp response
Sliding the fader on the dimmer board from 0 ~ 100 controls the
number of lamps that are on within a fixture.
Note: the lamps may respond ± 4 channel levels, depending on the
dimmer board.

Setting the unit to “Individual Lamp” mode allows each lamp position
within the fixture Sequence to have it’s own address. Although this
option will use up a lot of addresses, it may be preferable for certain
The “Individual Lamp” mode is useful in achieving light effects like
flickering, chasing or creating light patterns.
After the DMX address is entered, the DMX Wall-O-Lite automatically
assigns the next 7 addresses to lamp positions 4 -10. For the sake of
simplification it is advisable to select address sequences such as 1,
10, 20, 30, 40 and so on.
For example, if the DMX Wall-O-Lite base address is set at 001, the
configuration below will provide eight lamps individually addressable
through DMX512.
